How St. Louis’s literary past is coming to life in the Central West End

Tennessee Williams is one of two writers already represented at the corner of Euclid and McPherson avenues in the Central West End.

The history of St. Louis’s Central West End is steeped in literature. The area is tied to four of America’s most famous writers: T. S. Eliot, Tennessee Williams, Kate Chopin and William S. Burroughs. But until recently, the neighborhood had no official tributes to the literary greats.

Reporter's Notebook: Running in Joplin

Relaxing after a long, slow day of running. The race starts in Commerce, Ok., and finishes in Joplin.
Jacob Fenston KBIA

I ran a marathon in Joplin last weekend – the second annual “Mother Road Marathon,” along Route 66. It was hot, there was a head wind, and it was a long slow day. My time was exactly one hour longer than my first marathon six months ago. I didn’t have a good excuse for my slowness – I’ve just been lazy about training. But for locals in Joplin, training for this race was truly challenging.

Lawmaker Seeks New 'Family Consent' Law

State Representative Bill White wants a "family consent" law in Missouri.
Jacob Fenston KBIA

End-of-life decisions can be wrenching for families. In the early 2000s, the case of Terri Schiavo riveted the nation, as her family battled over whether to remove her feeding tube or keep her on life support. Now, 44 states have so-called “family consent” laws, which help determine which family member should make health care decisions. Missouri is one of the six states with no such law, putting families and doctors in legal limbo. But a bill headed for the Missouri legislature could change that.
